Basic Wages Data 2008

Client:  Australian Fair Pay Commission - AFPC

This project supplied the Australian Fair Pay Commission (AFPC) with data that enabled a comparison of statutory minima prior to the introduction of Work Choices with the same provisions in Work Choices collective agreements. To do this, the AFPC requested data predominantly drawn from work undertaken by the WRC for the Lowering the Standards: From Awards to Work Choices in Retail and Hospitality Agreements report. The wages and conditions in those agreements were compared back to the agreements and awards that preceded them.
